Watch theater shows, virtual concert while in self quarantine
Many cultural institutions are making resources available online for free, while the world is in lockdown and in quarantine
The world is in self-quarantine or lockdown so most people are looking for ways to stay entertained. Thankfully, many cultural institutions are making resources available online for free, and Russia’s cultural sites are no different. Here are a few sites you can also check out without leaving your sofa!
For starters, St. Petersburg’s Alexandrinsky Theater is moving the premiere of its newest play, “Mauzer,” online. It will be the first time in the 264-year history of the theater that a play will be performed without an audience watching.
Another project, Stay Home with Russian Seasons, kicks off March 23 and features cultural activities such as concerts and ballet recitals. The next day, March 24, Zaryadye Hall will feature the online broadcast of an organ concert by soloist Lada Labzina. More concerts will be broadcast online in the months of March and April.
Cultural institutions aren’t the only ones helping to get online access to cultural material. Sberbank partnered with the online movie platform Okko to present Art Online, a collection of plays, concerts, virtual exhibits, and other video content from Russian cultural sites.
So, if you’re stuck at home and looking for a little cultural enrichment, check out some of these amazing Russian cultural resources!
